Springsteen Wins Close Vienna Race

Sandhya Somashekhar

Howard Springsteen edged out incumbent Dan Dellinger in last night's close election for Vienna Town Council, according to Fairfax County results.

Springsteen was ahead of Dellinger by a vote last night, but the results were too close to call because of a provisional ballot that could not be counted until this morning. The ballot was deemed valid, and it threw another vote to Springsteen, who declared victory this morning with a two-vote lead over Dellinger.

"I have a lot of respect for Dan Dellinger," Springsteen said today. "It shows every vote counts."

Springsteen, a New Jersey native with a dog named Boss, is not related to "the Boss."

Lol. When I first read this, I have to say that I immediately thought of Bruce! Too bad he's not related.

THE BOSS IS BACK! Strange - I thought he'd run in New Jersey?

Clearly he was Born to Run.

I guess this 'Politician' had 'Reason to Believe' that 'People Have the Power' to 'Change It' for 'Sweet Virginia'.

I can't stand it -- four posts to this political blog and not one word of invective! Is it something in the Vienna water? I love it!

Sandhya, please close this before an extremist gets to it.

I suspect the copy editor cut space, but a little basic info on the winner would be nice - what party (I); the highlights of his platform,...Thanks

In Virginia local (town) elections, you are now allowed to affiliate with a party. So, everyone runs as an 'I'....
